Default What first?

I'm planning to get a new exhuast system. What would be the best part to swap out first: cat-back, hi-flow cat, header. I personally would go in that order, but I'd like to hear other suggestions. I plan to get the greddy evo2 cat-back and a DC sports header, but what would be a good "hi-flow cat" to get?

Since you plan on replacing all that stuff at some point in time, if you can wait, you'll save a lot of time and work if you can save up and then but it at once and replace it all at once.

exactly, it will be a lot easier to do it all at once, instead of jacking up the car and going under it unbolting stuff every time you're replace something.

haha if you have the patience to wait, i know if it were me id just wanna die seeing a full catback just sitting there awaiting the arrival of the other parts, but definately go with the greddy evo2 and dc sports header, and ive heard magnaflow makes a good high flow cat, could be wrong but im pretty sure they do.

Are there any audiofiles on the web, where I can hear the evo?

Screw waiting. If you have the money for a cat-back now- get it now. Peicing together is more fun to me than dropping it in all at once.

I agree with LEVIII on the order.

Always scares me to make any major changes more than one at a time. If something is not done correctly... it makes troubleshooting it REALLY REALLY hard. But that is just me... I suppose if you were super-confident it might make a difference.
